Caramel Popcorn

All right, it was a landslide folks.    Shauri Quinn wins for You Got Served.  Thank you so much for all the extra suggestions.  Maybe some of y'all should steal some titles and jump on the recipe blog bandwagon so I can keep eating well. 

Here is Shauri's well deserved dedication:

Game night: strikes fear in the heart of some, ecstasy in the heart of others.  Game night ranges from the entire family and all of their friends ferociously competing then shamelessly singing and dancing the night away, to just some of the family intensely competing.  And I'm not scared to say that without Shauri, game night, in any of it's forms, would not be the magical experience it is today.  She invites the guests when we're too anti-social; she organizes the games when we're too lazy;  she makes us laugh when we want to fight; she lets us use her yellow prom dress when we can't come up with anything else; and most important of all: she makes the caramel popcorn.  Here's to you  Shauri Shar.   

1 large batch of popcorn (about 1 cup of corn kernels)

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white Karo syrup
1/4 cup water
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 cube of butter
1 t baking soda

Add first six carmel ingredients to a medium sized saucepan and bring to a rolling boil.  Cook for 5 minutes.  Take off heat, stir in baking soda and stir.  Put the popcorn in a paper  grocery bag and slowly add the caramel, mixing with a spoon as you go.  Then lay the popcorn out on wax paper to cool.  (there is enough carmel for one large batch of popcorn)

I love the drawing of you too! And I'm glad you put this recipe online because I have it copied down haphazardly on a torn scrap of paper that has been moved from house to house. Thanks KQE!
